This is another book of the diabetic manual type but rather different from most of its predecessors. The outstanding features are the excellent illustrations, many of them in color, picturing, for example, the technic of insulin injection. There are also many useful diagrams concerning the action of the various insulins. All the ordinary things which the diabetic patient needs to know are thoroughly discussed. There are several pages warning persons with diabetes against fraudulent "cures," a warning which certainly can do no harm.
